Genesis Chapter Tactical Squad

Tactical Squad Lucius of the Genesis Chapter 2nd Company

The first five models of the first Genesis Chapter tactical squad are complete. This particular photo makes them look a lot more red then what they really are, but you'll have to take my word for it, they do match the Dreadnought and Terminators. Perhaps the lighting and/or my camera settings weren't quite the same. Thankfully I don't claim to be a photographer. Oh well... I think the picture is still fairly nice. So on with it - How did I paint them?
  • I started from a Chaos Black undercoat and painted the whole miniature Mechrite Red.
  • To do the shading and highlighting I first gave the miniature a heavy wash of Devlan Mud followed by a drybrushing of Blood Red after the wash was given enough time to dry.
  • The shoulder guard trim and chest eagles were first painted Shining Gold followed by Brown Ink and highlighted with Burnished Gold.
  • The sergeants 'loin cloth' and some of the marines honour badges were first painted with Codex Grey then highlights were done with Fortress Grey followed by Skull White.
  • The Purity Seal ribbons where painted Bleached Bone and then given a wash of Gryphonne Sepia and then highlighted with some thinned Bleached Bone. The wax seal was painted Ultramarines Blue and then washed with Asurman Blue.
  • The metallic areas of the Bolters and Chainsword were first painted with Boltgun Metal and washed with Badab Black and highlighted with lite a drybrushing Mithril Silver.


  1. Wow. Just...wow.

  2. I agree, they look great.

    Sometimes I wish I had picked red instead of white.
    There's always been something nice about a red painted army.
